What is positive contribution?
Our definition of “positive contribution” is the submission of substantial, helpful, friendly, and humorous posts to the boards, along with the uploading of quality images and files. We feel that positive contribution should be treated as a way of donating without actually having to fork over cash.
Web pages change alot
We know that web pages can change over time and even go off-topic for various reasons. Sometimes the content of the web page changes so much that it can no longer be considered to be about the same topic it was originally. Sometimes there were database errors or the site was down for maintenance or the web page was hacked.
why we do it..Web archives have been used as evidence in court cases and in the court of public opinion—often to hold politicians and governments accountable for things they have said in the past.
Often these instances are captured by web crawlers and saved in web archives. we can automatically identify these instances so that the off-topic mementos can be filtered out before summarization or visualization.
Our work on enabling users to create their own web archives and building tools to improve access to web archives has uncovered several interesting research issues that we are continuing to investigate.
Can I submit an archive?of-course – @
News editors edit a lot…
There have been recent cases where web page owners have put restrictions on the playback of their pages from the Internet Archive, but not all archives are subject to those restrictions.
Tools To Archive with
Projects like tools that allow users to submit web pages to multiple web archives at the same time. The Mink Chrome browser extension not only provides access to archives of the page currently being viewed in the browser, but also allows users to submit the page for archiving by three different archives: the Internet Archive, archive.is, and WebCite. Those familiar with Python can install and use archivenow, which also allows users to create local WARCs. Finally, we built a Twitter bot, ICanHazMemento for archiving URLs found in tweets. A user can include #icanhazmemento in a tweet with a URL (or in a reply to a tweet that contains a URL), and the bot will reply with a link to the archived web page.
Web archives are becoming increasingly important for those studying the culture and history of the past 20 years.
Our overarching motivation is the belief that bringing the past web into the web browser is a key component of enabling more access to and use of web archives and press transparency.
